We have the privilege to construct native habitat for our clients’ projects that may have spent years in the permitting, design, and funding stages, and we specialize in navigating the regulatory agency compliance process while building successful projects.
Our projects take us from saltwater marshes and coastal dunes to Sierra intermountain streams to desert dunes and habitats. Being a part of a team of expert tradesmen, engineers, biologists, architects and regulatory experts that can utilize our large fleet of specialized low-ground pressure equipment allows us to successfully construct diverse native habitat in California and the Western United States.
We are driven by our mission statement: “Redefining mitigation to better serve our clients and nature”. Our focus is on establishing long-term collaborative relationships with our clients while successfully achieving cost-effective regulatory agency sign-off criteria. Helping our clients be successful is directly linked with HRS’ success in being a zero-debt, employee-owned, design-build general engineering construction firm.
